Why Marin?

Experience + Technology = Healing

We use the latest advancements in wound care to heal our patients. The treatment of a slow or non-healing wound starts with making a precise diagnosis. Without understanding the cause of the wound, and an accurate treatment plan cannot be made. Marin uses an integral approach to wound care which incorporates the use of relevant diagnostic tests.

Groundbreaking Clinical Studies

Our physicians have saved thousands of limbs over the years through education and research efforts. In 2003,
Dr. Alex Reyzelman opened the Center for Clinical Research. CCR partners with a wide range of pharmaceuticals, medi­cal device companies, biotechnology, and contract research organizations to bring education and awareness of the positive benefits of clinical trials to patients, physicians, and the wider healthcare community.

World Renowned Surgical Services

Our doctors perform inpatient surgical procedures at prestigious local hospitals such as UCSF Medical Center, California Pacific Medical Center, Eden Medi­cal Center, Aha Bates Medical Center, Summit Medical Center, San Ramon Regional Medical Center and St. Mary’s Medical Center. We work closely with vascular surgeons in a coordinated effort to prevent amputa­tions. We are affiliated with UCSF Center for Limb Presezvation & Diabetic Foot.

Amputation Prevention

Foot ulcers most commonly lead the pathway to amputations. Our team is focused on intercepting the progression and inhibiting the recurrence of the ulcers. The goal of treating a patient with a diabetic foot wound is to achieve complete healing as quickly as possible in order to prevent amputation. We strive to restore the patients quality of life, giving them the ability to lead an active, pain free lifestyle.

UCSF Center for Limb Preservation

In 2011 Dr. Reyzelman dedicated time and effort building a Limb Preservation and Wound Care Center at UCSF limbpreservation.ucsf.edu. He partnered with Dr. Michael Conte MD, a Vascular Surgeon, to help diabetic patients in need of advanced wound care and limb preservation. This multi-disciplinary approach pools the expertise of vascular surgeons, podiatrists, reconstructive microsurgeons, and other specialists to provide integrated, multidisciplinary, care for patients at high risk of foot and leg amputation, particularly diabetic patients.

Your first step towards an active, pain-free lifestyle starts here.
